ADHD remains the most prevalent and challenging of behavioral disorders in school-aged children.

The Ruane Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Columbia University and current President of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Dr. Greenhill will discuss the latest research and clinical advances in the treatment and management of ADHD.
